Welcome to our guide on crafting effective math IEP goals, centered on learning standard 4.OA.A.2. This standard emphasizes solving word problems that involve multiplicative comparisons using multiplication or division, and differentiating these from additive comparisons. Our target IEP goal is to help students improve their ability to solve comparison word problems with both addition and multiplication, aiming to progress from 0/10 to 8/10 correct work samples over ten trials. By setting SMART goals—Specific, Measurable, Attainable, Results-Oriented, and Time-Bound—we ensure students make measurable strides in operations and algebraic thinking skills. Explore our objectives and strategies to support your students' journey to mastering these essential math skills.
